Benefits & Emergency Assistance

The shared mission of this Working Group is to ensure that veteran advocates understand civilian assistance programs and that civilian case managers and organizations understand veteran benefits. Benefits & Emergency Assistance Working Group brings together leaders from public agencies and non-profit organizations to assist each other and service members, veterans and their families in understanding the full spectrum of – and intersection of – civilian and military/veteran benefit programs.   Types of programs this group will address include disability benefits; healthcare, nutrition, emergency assistance and others that Working Group members identify in the future; however, the work of this group will specifically exclude housing, employment and education programs.
